100th Anniversary, Battle of the Somme

By Olivia Diaz September 27, 2016

We’re proud to support the Royal British Legion as they mark the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. We’re commemorating Corporal H Kilvington of the Royal Engineers. The pins, like the one¬†you can see in the images below, were crafted using metal from 1916 shell fuses recovered from the Somme battlefields in France. Finely ground earth from the Somme was used to create the central red enamel of the pin.
